NO. 28 DHL HONDA
“We only did one real run this morning — which is less than most of the rest of the field. I guess the good news is that we saved a set of tires. I look forward to better weather tomorrow and getting the Toronto weekend properly started.”
NO. 26 ANDRETTITV / CINSAY HONDA
“It was a short day because of the weather, but tomorrow is what’s important with qualifying. We have been working hard and hope the momentum we’ve had with the win (Detroit Race One) and our good finish last weekend (at Texas Motor Speedway) continues this weekend here in Toronto.”
NO. 27 DR PEPPER HONDA
“We would like to have had more track time today, but there just wasn’t much sense in running the afternoon session. We’ll go back out in the morning and work to get some good data with the Dr Pepper car before qualifying.”
